Grateful to God
I have been so exhausted lately. The family drama, not getting enough sleep, and all the rain has tired me out. It seems like the chores and daily grind will not quit on me. At the end of the day, I have to remind myself how lucky I am to have what I have and love the people in my life. Being thankful for the good people and things in my life is the only way to keep going.
Negativity can only bring a person down, leaving one feeling burdened. But almsgiving brings one closer to God and is good for the soul. God gives so much to each of us and reflecting on those things will help us be more grateful. I have a hard time reminding myself this truth in times of darkness, but it is a good one to come back to.
If one gives up fighting, life will always win. God waits for us to come back to His love and opens His arms every time. He just is asking for our love. Being grateful is part of loving a person and it will open up one’s heart to loving even more.
